I'm building a gaming computer and I have no clue what type of case to get.
What I'm looking for:
-Cool/good looking design
-Lots of space, I plan on running SLI and at least 2 SSDs/3 HDDs)
-Great airflow, to keep everything cool while running "heavier" games.
I've only found 2 possible choices so far, the Cooler Master HAF X and the NZXT Phantom. My current options on each:
Cooler Master HAF X:
Looks it has plenty of space and great airflow, but the design sorta bores me.
Looks amazing to me, has space but I've read that the HAF X has much, much better airflow.
Are there any other cases to consider? My budget is under $200, but I would definitely consider a more expensive case if it is really worth it.
I personally LOVE the NZXT Switch 810..great airflow, great looks (in my opinion, anyway), and great price. Of course, I don't own one, and my opinion is only from looking at reviews, but it still awes me, and I plan to get one later in April. Though I think if you're wanting to get the Phantom, if you add more fans to it, I'm sure it'll be just as good (if not a shade under) the HAF X. And considering the price difference, I'm sure you can squeeze in more fans inside the Phantom if you decide to buy that instead.
Also there's also the Antec Twelve Hundred. I'm not a big fan of it, but from reviews it seems to be a great case.
Current options for me: (no order)
NZXT Switch 810
CM Storm Trooper
CM HAF X
Antec 1200 V3
Which of these cases has the most space/best airflow?
Not really considering the Corsair cases because they're all mid towers...
Also, could someone briefly explain the difference between 5.25in and 3.5in bays?
